If you're following me on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook you would have already read about my collaboration with Vero Moda as the official fashion guide and style expert for Sulafest '14. I am beyond thrilled to be joining hands with one of my favourite fashion brands for a mega music festival like Sulafest! While you can expect a lot of content leading up to the eventual event on 1st and 2nd Feb, here's a blog post to kick start the madness.
A lot of you asked me about styling ideas and outfit inspiration for a music festival like Sulafest. Here's a step by step breakdown, with pieces from Vero Moda's latest collection, to help you create different looks that are perfect for the occasion.
Style Tip - Bring a twist to the predictable by getting hold of a faux leather top or tunic and knotting it to create an interesting silouhette. A chunky bold metal necklace is an ideal pick for a music fest as it adds an extra oomph factor to your outfit while still keeping it hassle free.
Style Tip - If you like to keep it stylish without giving in to the conventional norms, break a few rules by mixing prints! A basic printed tank top set against a busy skirt as above is a definite way to make a style statement. Consider accessorising with a solid coloured belt to balance the clashing prints if you find the look particularly overwhelming.
Style Tip - Aztec print is probably one of the biggest trend when it comes to music festivals. Create a monochrome outfit like above and top it off with a loud pout in fuchsia or red. Alternatively, you can choose a coloured bottom and pair it with a denim crop top to recreate this look.
Style Tip - Casual doesn't necessarily have to mean boring. This laid-back and uber comfortable look is a complete no brainer for a long day at Sula Fest. Pair your statement tracks, pyjamas or palazzo pants with a sorbet or neon coloured top for an instant style fix while sticking within your comfort zone.
Style Tip - A dash of bling always goes a long way in taking the most basic of your outfits a few notches higher. A statement neckpiece like this can well compliment almost all of your outfits and is definitely a good investment.
Style Tip - Ripped denims and shorts kind of a girl? Skip pairing your trusty old denims with a cotton tank/vest. Instead, opt for a sequinned or glitter number and watch out for compliments that will come your way! To enjoy a long day at a music festival without having to worry about lugging around your belongings, make sure you've got your essentials covered in a sling clutch.
Style Tip - A pair of sunnies will come in handy to brave the February sun. Opt for classic aviators, wayfarers or experiment with cat eye or oversized sunglasses.
Style Tip - Unleash the bohemian in you by pairing a maxi dress with a floral scarf. You can also recreate a similar carefree vibe by pairing a printed maxi skirt with a tube top. A top knot, statement earrings, hand chains, stacked rings.....the options are endless when it comes to accessorising.
Style Tip - Interesting back details can offset your look and outfit from the others around. A halter neckline, a strappy back, a deep V....consider opting for such pieces. Make sure you have your hair tied up in a bohemian updo or a fishtail braid to maximise the impact.
Style Tip - I paired two belts to make a statement. You too can do the same by mixing and matching the metallics, tan, studded and colored to amp up your solid hued pieces. The point is to have fun while experimenting.
